Train hacking, safety and cyber security and IOT security discussed at 2nd Annual Rail Cyber Summit

Advanced connectivity and the digitisation of future rail systems will provide greater levels of efficiency and optimisation, reduce carbon footprints and deliver greater value to asset owners, shareholders and passengers. However the integration and implementation of ERTMS, ETCS and CBTC systems, the connected interdependence of the next generation rail eco system introduces new vulnerabilities to infrastructure historically isolated from cyber attacks. The proliferation of machine to machine sensors, the Internet of Things and the convergence of IT and Operation Technologies – two very different disciplines, has extended the attack surface dramatically. From insider threats to malware to the manipulation of electromagnetic interferences, the industry has a new challenge to ensure the safety and reliability of the UK and European rail transport sector.  "Transport in Europe provides for the movement needs of over 700 million people and associated freight." Join the Cyber Senate on March 14th and 15th in London for an in-depth discussion on the current and future threat, how the industry is responding , the absolute importance of “Security by Design,” the challenges that bridging IT and OT bring in deploying enterprise facing architecture and how to further develop a culture of awareness. www.railcybersecurity.com

Cyber Security for digital rail Europe

The Cyber Senate are pleased to announce new Thought Leaders for the 2nd Annual Rail Cyber Security Summit in London March 14th and 15th.

Now in its second year, the event will take place in London United Kingdom, and will feature a range of experts from the rail transport industry, as well as leading Government and global cyber security subject matter leaders and academics working in the field.

We are pleased to announce the addition of Chris Roberts, Chief Security Architect, Acalvio Technologies, who will be leading "an interactive set of discussions around the whole environment that is transportation, work on a variety of attack vectors, talk people through what they HAVE done, and what they are planning on doing…..they will talk results, and about a lot of the attacks they've been doing in the US." Mr Roberts wont be giving any names away, but you can expect a thorough interactive discussion and we will also be including him in several panel sessions addressing IOT/IIOT, Cyber Security and Safety - a look at integration, interdependence and convergence, along with Supply Chain and 3rd party risk.

We are also pleased to announce Simon Tonks, CIO for Porterbrook, a rolling stock leasing company, who is involved in industry efforts to achieve a cybersecurity strategy for rail, to procure a cyber-secure implementation of ERTMS and to consider rolling stock architectures from a security perspective.

Also we are welcoming Johnny Schute, Office of Rail and Road, Deputy Director, Policy, Strategy and Planning. He is responsible for safety policy, regulatory enforcement, occupational health, risk management, inspector competence and compliance. Mr Schute will give us a snapshot on the "Maturity levels of rail cyber security, what is needed, where we would like to be versus where we are and how we intend on getting there."

Places on this exclusive Summit are limited, we suggest early registration to avoid disappointment!
